Surround Price increase $$$

Surround Price increase $$$

Anybody else see a HUGE price increase in Surround this year. Last year I was paying .90/lb. I go in today to pick up this years product, at the same place (Crop Production), and the price, $1.68/lb. That jacks up the spraying budget for this year a bit.

Two years ago I heard about big price increases coming for Surround but had not seen anything. Crop Production is usually pretty good price wise, I don't know of a Windfield Solutions thats close, shipping this stuff can really add up too.

Crop Production Services in Galesville, WI is charging $1.25/lb. It seems like the prices are all over the board depending on region.

Paid $1.52/lb this year here in Grass Valley, CA that is up from $1.20/lb last year.

For me there are cheaper sources down in the central valley, but the cost in gas and time to go get it would easily offset the savings.

Very interesting to see the pricing so different within the same company, Crop Production Services, region by region.

The nearest Crops Production Services office to me is in Yuba City which is ~ 50 miles west and about an 80 minute drive from my place.

I pay a premium and get my Surround from a Farm Supply store here in Grass Valley.
